The PiXAPRO 130cm Shoot-Through Parabolic Umbrella Photography is a multi-purpose light source, which spreads light over a wide area with soft and even lighting. Unlike your traditional Shoot-Thru umbrella, the PiXAPRO Shoot-Through Parabolic Umbrella includes a detachable reflective opaque black and silver backing, which prevents light from escaping out of the rear of the umbrella, maximizing the light output. This Umbrella is perfect for photographing large groupsweddingseventsportraiturefashion, and large interiors.

Large Diffused Light Source

This style of Parabolic Umbrella Photography is designed to be used to that the umbrella is pointing towards your subject. The light then passes through the translucent-white nylon material, producing a broad, soft light source, with a diffused quality. It can also be used to light your subject indirectly, where the light is pointed away from your subject, then is reflected towards your subject, via the interior surface of the umbrella towards your subject, for a subtle diffused quality of light. Due to its large size, this umbrella will spread the light over a large area, ideal for shooting large groups.

Parabolic Umbrella Photography with Removable Backing 

Unlike traditional shoot-through umbrellas, the PiXAPRO Shoot-Through Parabolic Umbrella comes with a detachable opaque backing, which can be added to the back of the umbrella, to prevent light from escaping out of the back of the umbrella, maximising the light output. The backing material features one black side and one silver side. The black side is designed to absorb any stray light, and the sliver-sided will reflect any light trying to escape out of the back of the modifier forwards, maximising light efficiency. It will also add a little contrast and specularity to your lighting, perfect fashion images.

Build Quality

The PiXAPRO Shoot-Through Parabolic Umbrella Photography features a lightweight 16-ribbed fibreglass frame with an 8mm metal shaft, which makes it suitable for use with most brands of lights. Its fibreglass frame makes the umbrella more durable, and less susceptible to being bent out of shape like traditional metal-framed umbrellas sometimes can. The umbrella’s surface is made from high-quality nylon for durability. The Umbrella collapses down for easy storage and transportation.

The PiXAPRO Shoot-Through Parabolic Umbrella Photography with Removeable Backing is the perfect addition to the arsenal of photographers and cinematographers who are looking for a large diffused light source and want to spread light over a wide area.


  • Removeable Opaque backing prevents light wastage, maximizing light output.
  • Quick and easy Set up
  • The white translucent layer ensures soft lighting and a high reflection capacity.
  • Ideal for portrait shots and small group shots
